    Depends what you want. Bradfords 's usp is curry. For bog standard to to the kasmir, for more up market try the international.

    Or for any other decent food - go to L666s! Or Saltaire.
    There’s only one decent restaurant in Bradford which is Cona, but that’s a dry place so no drinking!

    I think you have a decent addition in Jake Young. Im still miffed why he wasnt given a chance under Hughes. If you remember the game earlier in the season he was the different maker for us. Nice goal, think he may have got an assist too. I remember him giving your right back a few problems too.

    Hope he does well for you and if it costs us a play off place to ya then only ourselves to blame.

    Brilliant thanks for the info
    We are all excited by Jake Young coming to the club. The manager is really excited so hopefully we can get a good run from him. If he turns out good then you will deffo want him back for next season. How is Matt Platt doing for you?

    Traditional pub grub‘brown horse’ in Coley
    But you’ll need to book a table
    Good choice of real ale. Taylors landlord being my personal recommendation

    Not consistent enough, 1 good game followed by 2 poor games.

    Agree about the Brown Horse,but it's a fair way out of Bradford,and on the wrong side if you are coming from Barrow.

    Have you already booked your place to stay? If you haven't I would recommend the Shipley area and getting a taxi to the game. A variety of places to eat in Shipley especially in the Saltaire area. Curry houses of good quality- Aagrah, Shimla Spice. Good burger place called Rumpus. Fine dining at The Waterside. Pizza places and bars too. A much better environment than central Bradford IMHO.

    Platt in the top three signings last summer.

    Now for the bad news

    Young
    Hates a tackle
    Runs down rabbit holes and loses the ball
    Does NOT track back, so puts unwarranted pressure on the full back
    Very lightweight and easily bullied , thus disappearing thereafter
    Not all that quick nor tricky

    That is my honest appraisal.

    Taxi?…

    When we come up we stay in the Premier Inn below Fox Corner
    Train to Forster Square
    Corn Dolly or North Parade

    Do you mean the IBIS hotel in Shipley? There isn't a Premier Inn. OP mentioned he was attending with his family. A taxi is likely to be cheaper than the train for 3 or more.

    If our coaching team can’t get him going no one will. Seriously this season they have turned players that other clubs thought we’re not up to scratch into solid and confident players. Did anyone think we would be having teams like Bradford complaining of loaning players to play off rivals. Little old Barrow

    Yes that’s the one , my bad. Fair point about numbers travelling. I am a bit train biased.

    Sometimes it can bite you up the rear.

    When we lived further south we came up from Kings Cross to Leeds, then train from Leeds to FS. Train diverted to bloody Baildon due to signalling issues. Missed all my Dolly time and got in ground 15 mins after kick off! Grr!

    It’s nothing to do with training, our loanee from Villa who they just “ sold” to Plymouth was a far better player on all counts .
    Young started off well, but his attributes, or lack of, caught up with him imho.

    I hope he does well for you.

    We are fond of trains too. We are off on holiday in a few weeks. We'd normally get the train, but the state of Trans Pennine Express at the moment means it is a car to the airport.
